9 Months .. thats 3/4 of a year aint it? :)

Well, well 3/4 of a year already has passed.. and this quit is the longest i've ever been free of nicotine for.

I don't miss smoking... haven't for quite some months now.. i face everyday stress all the time and i don't crave a smoke to get through it.

so today i'm posting my 9 months milestone. Hope everyone else is doing ok on their quits too.

/peace.

hey jase - really pleased for you that you made it past that 8 month mark thats got you in the past. You are home free now I think mate.

must be noticing a bit more breath in the lungs by now. btw did you hear about that girl in cornwall that broke the world record for underwater swimming unassisted. she did over 40 minutes. thats crazy eh? aparently put her self into a yogic trance with breathing techiniques or something. wonder if this is the secret ->

The feeling of reaching so many months smoke-free is tremendous, isn't it?! Well worth the trials and tribulations of the first few days and weeks. Well done and hope you're enjoying your fag-free life. Just think, not long till we reach the Penthouse. :) x

yes it is Zolat, and you know?? i keep looking for your post every single month to show you are another month done and i know soon after i'll be saying the same :)... its been quite the journey hasn't it eh :).

I think i've reached a point in my quit where it really does feel more solid than other quits i've ever attempted.. and most of that has been due to reading up about what i was quitting, and ways to deal with cravings etc, and of course using forums and meeting so many good hearted folk all after the same goal.

Peace to you Zolat, and look forward to seeing your 10th month milestone post :)

Yay, well done Jase. Sometimes you talk to people you know won't do it, because their head isn't in the right place. But I knew that you would.

Thanks for your help too, and i admire the amount of support you give to others, which isn't and never will be a bad thing.

Happy Birthday Jase

Best Wishes for today and congrats on a great quit,

Hey Jase,

Thats FANTASTIC NEWS ... thats so great to read. As you know things are a bit hairy for me in my quit at times (and with the added sadness/grief of losing a friend at my 3 months marker has been double shaky this week). You always say the right thing and give me inspiration.

i can't wait to get to where you are. Please God!!

Well Done xxxxx
